Picks for You

Lift Off!

We all know a kid or two who dreams of becoming an astronaut when he or she grows up. Take a seat behind the "spacecraft" at the only Challenger Center open to the public, the Town of Ramapo Challenger Center (formerly the Lower Hudson Valley Challenger Center).

At the center, kids go on Public Space Missions where they'll learn about science and engineering — two subjects the nation is working to bring to the forefront of education so our young children can become the future creative thinkers and problem-solvers of the world.
